Grand Jury Investigations
The grand jury consists of a group of citizens who meet regularly to hear evidence concerning alleged crimes to determine if probable cause exists. As the powerful investigative arm of the prosecution, the grand jury has the authority to issue subpoenas that require individuals to provide testimony or documents or other evidence. Upon receiving a grand jury subpoena, it is critical to retain a highly skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
